Use this workflow when an employee informs you that he plans to take ordinary paternity leave in respect of a new baby that is expected shortly.
Eligible employees have the right to take either one or two consecutive weeks’ ordinary paternity leave for the purpose of caring for their new son or daughter, around the time of the child's birth. They may also be entitled to receive statutory ordinary paternity pay.
This workflow is an example of a legally compliant process. Where your organisation's own procedures go beyond the procedure set out in this workflow, you should follow these.
